Lombardo praises economic progress at Johnston groundbreaking
JOHNSTON – Today’s groundbreaking of a new mixed residential-commercial building on Atwood Avenue is just another example of the economic revival occurring in Rhode Island, said Sen. Frank Lombardo III (D-Dist. 25, Johnston).
The senator joined town officials at 10 a.m. today for a groundbreaking ceremony of the new 28,000-square-foot complex, located adjacent to TD Bank North and Walgreens.
“I think there is a feeling, particularly in Johnston, that we are finally turning a corner,” Senator Lombardo said. “The town has drawn in about 140 new businesses this year. People are excited to get back to work and explore new possibilities in development and entrepreneurship. We are getting back on track.”
Senator Lombardo is the deputy majority whip of the Rhode Island Senate. He is also the secretary of the Senate Committee on Labor, and a member of the Senate committees on commerce and rules.
